Gaudete! The Lord is at hand, have no anxieties
The Third Sunday of Advent and the anniversary of the Saviour's birth draws near:
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice.
Let your forbearance be known to all, for the Lord is near at hand;
have no anxiety about anything, but in all things, by prayer and supplication,
with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God.
Lord, you have blessed your land; you have turned away the captivity of Jacob.
